Property Description: DESCRIPTION
This three bedroom semi-detached house occupies a good sized, level plot boasting a driveway providing off road parking, and gardens to the front and rear. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing, gas central heating and hot water from an Ideal gas combi-boiler (2020). Downstairs there is a spacious living room which could be used as a lounge/diner if desired, a kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory and good sized enclosed entrance porch ideal for coat and shoe storage. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms, a good sized single bedroom and family bathroom with separate shower cubicle. In the rear garden there is a brick outbuilding currently used as a utility room/workshop (water, electricity and drainage connected) which provides extra storage. This deceptively spacious property is ideal for those looking for a village home, close to amenities and the countryside. ACCOMMODATION
The front door opens into a good sized porch with space for coats and shoes. An internal door opens to the entrance hall with stairs to the first floor, door to the kitchen/breakfast room and two storage cupboards (one housing the electric and gas meters). The L-shaped kitchen/breakfast room boasts a range of fitted cupboards with laminate work top over, a freestanding gas cooker with four-ring hob, grill and oven (available by separate negotiation), space for a fridge/freezer and space and plumbing for a dishwasher.
Folding doors open to the sitting room at the front of the property which is large enough to be used as a lounge/diner if required. An open fireplace on a limestone hearth creates a focal point to the room. The conservatory boasts fitted blinds to the windows and roof and opens out to the rear garden.
The first floor landing has a recessed alcove with shelves and heater, doors to the three bedrooms and family bathroom. The largest bedroom, a generous double, enjoys views over the rear garden to the woodland beyond. To the front are a double and a single bedroom. A family bathroom features a bath, shower cubicle, WC and basin. OUTSIDE
To the front of the property is a driveway and garden laid to lawn. The rear of the property is also laid to lawn with raised beds and wooden deck. The rear boundaries are wooden fences with a Devon bank with a laid hedge which includes wild roses.
A brick outbuilding in the rear garden is currently used as a utility and workshop/store and boasts water, drainage and electricity. SITUATION
Yealm Park is on the Western edge of Yealmpton in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, next to the cricket ground and woodland, yet walking distance to the village amenities. Yealmpton is ideally situated for commuting to Plymouth, the city centre being only seven miles away. Within the village there are health care facilities such as a GP health centre, dentist, optician and podiatrist, shops such as a Post Office, general store, Ben's Farm Shop, hairdressers, garage and filling station with Londis convenience store, café, two public houses and a Chinese restaurant/take away. Yealmpton Primary School is a short walk and the village is in the catchment for Ivybridge Community College for which there is transport provided (both schools rated 'Good'). The village boasts an active community with a wide range of social and sporting clubs and societies.
Surrounded by the beautiful South Hams countryside, with many walks along the River Yealm and beyond, Yealmpton has a rural feel. The yachting haven of Newton Ferrers (mooring rights within Yealm Harbour for Yealmpton residents) is within a short drive, while many of the sandy coves and beaches of the beautiful South Devon coastline are within easy reach, as are golf courses and the Dartmoor National Park. Plymouth itself is an historic and vibrant waterside city, well provided with colleges, grammar and public schools, a modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department stores, cafés, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb water-sports in and around Plymouth Sound and the Plymouth Life Centre. SERVICES
